We had the good fortune of connecting with Devin Bianchini and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Devin, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
Balance is very important in my line of work. As a freelancer it is very easy to put work first and always say yes to a job because we don’t have a steady salary. I used to find myself always saying yes and putting my loved ones on the back burner. It takes some time to realize work is not always everything and it is okay to say no to work at times and to put yourself and other priorities in your life first.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
One of my favorite things about working in film and tv is creating characters. I love the process of breaking down a script and really starting to see a character come together. Being professional, organized, and of course creative have helped me get to where I am today.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If someone was visiting me there would definitely be beach trips, hikes, and restaurants involved! I have an Australian shepherd so being outdoors walking, around enjoying the weather, and being active are things I love to do. Venice beach wines is also one of my favorite places to enjoy a wine flight and some delicious cheeses!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
There are so many people who have gotten me to where I am in my career now. Of course the support of my fiancé and my family have kept me going to reach my goals even when I felt it was impossible to reach. Also Michael Feifer who helped me learn my craft in film. Countless fellow makeup artists, including Kristen Koskella, who I have grown with.
